Hi, I need some help by a multiple form for an automated document, useable in school. (quarterly rapport)

First of all, we are tired to modify for a certain school numerous times their content and skills. So, it has to be automated.

I tought it would be easy to create a table with radiobuttons, so everybody can select wich theme fits to wich cours (say, under English select Grammar, Vocab....)
But the issue for the second controlbox was much difficult. Take the same ex. you can say the English has the course Grammar and under Grammar you have 3 other points....

How can I create this second form, with formulas, easy to correct?

I have to create a multiple form and it's really important, because otherwise my points are wrong calculated.

Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

Hello, Lekke007
Welcome to the Board !!!!!

can you clarify a bit more ?
do you mean you've got some lists and sublists ?
did you ever use userforms ?

this looks a but like dependent comboboxes, but your question is rather vague
take a look at this "famous" thread
(the link is already pointed to the "most relevant post")
http://www.mrexcel.com/board2/viewt...=0&postorder=asc&highlight=cascading&start=26
for a technique using comboboxes
http://www.mrexcel.com/board2/viewtopic.php?t=152281&start=5


my suggestion would be to take it step by step
what would you like to do first ?

kind regards,
Erik

step by step

So Erik,

It seems to be that we are close neighbours. :biggrin:
You live in the town I grew up.

But don't spoil other's pleasure of having your advise.

First of all:

I need a usefriendly way to create a group and it's subgroups and then their subgroups. It has to be in a way that others can modify them on a easy way. So, therefor I created 2 tables within the first custom rowheadings (to let them complete it) and then in the colums other headings (also to complete it). Then afterwards users can select by clicking on the right radiobutton in which groep the subgroep fits.

The same thing I did with their subgroeps. But afterwards it is necessary to retreive this information in a more customway. I mean, if you say that you sell apples and bananas, you say in the subgroup you sell 3 different types of apples and in their subgroup you say it are red and green ones, I have to get that information. Because if you change afterwards in 4 types of bananas, the hole structure change.

And afterwards, I need this information to show to the end-user and it is necessairy to calculate things (so groups, subgroups change, but also the calculations)

Get it? Or is it better I mail you? ;))
